Jill chats to Ruth about the trip she's planning with Christine, to take Peggy to a hat exhibition on Friday. It was Jennifer's idea. She thought it might take Peggy out of herself a bit. Jill's surprised when Ruth tells her how old Pip's boyfriend is.

David tries to enlist Josh's help with the lambing, but he wants a rise in his pocket money in return! Ruth says he's just business-minded. He's picked it up from them - he's going to go far.

Helen tells Kirsty how shocked she was by Annette's sudden departure, covering for Annette by explaining it was down to relationship issues. Patrick invites Kirsty to watch bitterns with him at Arkwright Lake during her lunchtime and Helen assures her it's fine to take a long lunch.

Jill pops into Ambridge Organics and Helen admits to her that she's missing Annette's company. Jill tells Helen that Annette was lucky to have had her support.

Kirsty returns having had fun with Patrick. He's a great guy although they didn't see any bitterns. When Kirsty says how good it is working there because you never know who you're going to meet, Helen sadly agrees.
